Helping Those Who Were Injured By Construction Accidents
Navigating a construction site can be dangerous, even with the proper safety equipment. People working and visiting these sites must contend with heavy mechanical equipment, unsteady scaffolds, uneven surfaces and a variety of other dangers that can lead to serious accidents. Construction sites including roadwork sites can be even more dangerous for non-workers like pedestrians, motorcycle riders, and the general public passing through the area. When an injury occurs at a construction site, lawyers for the general contractor and sub-contractors work quickly after the incident which makes it important for the injured person or family of a deceased person to contact an experienced injury attorney quickly.

Construction Site Case Example
A traveling surgical nurse was driving through a construction site when an asphalt company incorrectly let members of the public drive on pavement that had yet to cure / harden. The surgical nurse was seriously injured because the site was not properly monitored. We aggressively pursued the at-fault parties and our client was offered $1,000,000 settlement. A federal judge told our client that he should settle. At our urging, our client turned down the offer and we went to a summary jury trial where the damages were assessed at $15,000,000.00. Insurance companies and corporate lawyers know our firm. They know we get great results and that we are aggressive. As a result, we routinely get settlements for clients that far exceed industry norms.

Do Not Delay In Getting Legal Help
Some people who are injured on construction sites worry that contacting a personal injury attorney may cause them to lose their employment or will risk their offered compensation. It is critical that you talk to a lawyer before accepting compensation from an insurance company. A personal injury attorney can help you determine the full cost of your medical recovery and can fight for you if the insurance company refuses to give you fair compensation.
